Weakness after working out

I have been working out for over a week now, but I now feel fatigued. I follow an intense 1 or 2 mile walk program with Leslie Sansone.   Legs and arms feel wobbly.  I don't generally workout though, I'm obese, and lead a sedentary lifestyle.  Is this normal for a person just starting to work out.  I felt fine the first couple of days, but I am now having problems.  Should I continue with the workouts?

Hi,
I am definitely not a professional in this field, but I do have experience, as I am overweight and go for walks (though not much lately!!!)

How often are you going?  And for how long? Do you power walk or just keep a good pace?

I found that taking a couple of nights off helped my muscles to recover.  
I used to go from Sunday to Thursday, and rested Friday and Saturday.
